PV / AV SERVICES

 

Essential Entertainments provide professional PA systems for all types of events. Ranging from a simple 2 speaker set up suitable for school fetes etc right up to complex multi speaker arrangements for larger scale public events such as Custom Car Shows, Fireworks Displays and Outdoor Concerts.

Our 3 main concerns are Public Safety, Our Safety and Quality of Sound. All staff are highly experienced in setting up and running speaker systems in an outdoor environment. Great care is taken in decisions as to where cables are run, as to the site of the amplication point or PA room (on larger events) and to the chosen site for the actual speakers.

As far as the quality of the sound is concerned we tend not to have any problems as we use top end industry standard PA equipment which sounds excellent and moreover is safe and reliable. Nothing is infallable though and rest assured it is company policy to always have back up on site. Click here to see what kind of audio equipment we use Look At Our Equipment

PROMPT - POLITE - PROFESSIONAL

Essential Entertainments will provide professional Disc Jockeys for every occasion. We have specialist DJ's for themed nights or when you just want a bias towards one type of music. We work in both the public and private sector and have our clients vary from local businesses to heads of state, VIP's etc.

 

Disco Cost
Midweek From £100
Weekend From £125

The above prices are based on regular work of up to 3 hours duration. Obviously the longer the DJ is required the higher the fee. Prices are not set in stone but please find below some common examples of longer duration events such as weddings, hotel gigs etc.

 

 

Disco Cost
Midweek X 4 hours From £140
Weekend X 4 hours From £175

 

Other factors that will contribute to price variations will be Distance to travel, Extended Hours, Daytime or extremely early Set ups, DJ's attire, Start & Finish Time, Number of guests, Ease of access, Personal Visits, Day of the Year, Quantity etc.

So, for example a DJ required to wear a suit for a five hour gig starting at 10 pm and finishing at 3 am which needs to be set up in the daytime and needs a lot of equipment because there are over 500 guests and the equipment needs to be carried up the back fire escape because there is no other way in on Christmas Eve in Scotland for a one off gig would cost considerably more than a 2 and a half hour disco on a regular monday night in a pub. Basically the more you want the more it costs but I think you will find our fees very competitive. The great thing about our company is that we are equally at home in all kinds of different environments.
